BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): So the president of the United States did a series of tweets and the speaker of the House thought it would be a good idea to condemn the president's remarks and put that vote on the House floor. The problem is she violated some ethics of House rules in doing so.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST):: I know, by wanting to take this vote, it was actually overshadowed by this dramatic floor fight. 

KILMEADE: Unscripted. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): So we're going to show you Nancy Pelosi where she uses “racist” in this conversation, which broke the rules. And then Steny Hoyer saying she broke the rules, and the House parliamentarian saying she broke the rules, and then there's a vote about should they strike it from the record. And Emanuel Cleaver, the Democrat from the great state of Missouri, looking out at all of the chaos, he actually drops the gavel and abandons the chair. He was presiding over the House. It was extraordinary. It was chaos. 


KILMEADE: Congressman [Doug] Collins is going by the manual of parliamentary practice that Thomas Jefferson put into play, which is personally -- is not supposed to use language that is personally offensive to the president. I believe calling the president a racist is personally offensive, but that's just my judgment. The manual also said that members cannot accuse the president of having made bigoted or racist statements.
